Turn the tables on cybercriminals. Keep your loved ones safe.
We live much of our personal and professional lives online, but fraudsters and hackers have made the internet dangerous. Cyberattacks are the US’s fastest growing crime: consumers lost more than $6.9 billion to fraud in 2021, up more than 50% from 2020; financial losses from online theft surpassed losses from home theft; 1 in 10 people become identity theft victims annually, including more than 1 million children. So how do we keep our kids, parents, colleagues, and selves safe against organized cybercriminals with their increasingly advanced tools?
Intelligent Safety: How to Protect Your Connected Family from Big Cybercrime teaches how we can put our families’ online safety on autopilot and regain our peace of mind. It provides families with the tools and knowledge they need to create a personalized, proactive defense against cybercriminals.
From identifying the risks of your teen’s secret online life to safeguarding your family finances to defending the vulnerabilities of your aging parents, Intelligent Safety is the last guide you’ll need to beat cyber predators at their own game.
Hari Ravichandran is an engineer, entrepreneur, technologist, philanthropist, and the CEO and founder of Aura, a digital safety unicorn. In 2014, Hari was hacked. The resulting damage to his credit caused Hari and his family to be denied a mortgage for a home. Following his burdensome experience repairing his “digital life” and securing his assets in “real life,” Hari was determined to make the internet a safer place for everyone else, so no one would need to suffer the damages he and his family had.
Hari is named on more than 40 approved or pending technology patents, has been named EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year for New England and a Forbes most powerful CEO under 40, and frequently speaks at major conferences like SXSW and Collision. He holds a BS in computer engineering from Mississippi State and an MBA from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.

"Cybercrime is on the rise. But the technologies offered to consumers have failed to provide the simplicity and usability that is required for wide-spread adoption. Hari identified that gap in the market and, through Intelligent Safety, he spotlights the opportunity to use the latest innovations in technology—AI and machine learning—to reinvigorate the category, addressing the historical blockers and protecting families."
